Somehow, I left out pictures from my April visit to Charlotte, NC, so I'm enclosing them in this article.

The Prime Timers Worldwide website includes a page-long application and answer to the question, "Who is an Independent Member?" I prefer to think of "Independents" in more personal terms. They are a band of men linked by common elements of life. The application for membership populates our database with the demographic information of an individual member and his interests. We know there are currently 106 members of the Independent Chapter that range in age from 38 to 90, have an average age of 71.1, live in four countries and 26 states or provinces, share dining out as their most common interest, and have the least interest in skiing out of 33 categories. However, it is when you look at each man as an individual "link" with his own life story that you see the potential of our Independent Chapter.
